You all were so awesome when I needed help with a torque wrench (it's on the way), I thought you might be willing to help me with this one as well?
Newbie, still first build project. I had the LBS do my headset, and they left a 2" stack so I could adjust it myself to dial in the fit. I want to move spacers from below the stem to above it. Here's my question: Will I need to remove the star nut and reinstall it to do this? If so, I was going to order a star nut install tool.
I've been told to let the bike rest on the ground with wheels on, and let the weight of the bike keep hold the fork on. Then remove the top cap, remove the spacers, replace in proper order, and replace the top cap (I guess there is a torque setting for the cap and stem). At this point I guess I can also make sure the bars and fork/wheel are aligned?
I'm as green as they come when it comes to assembling a road bike (or any bike). Am I on the right track here? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
